It was an atmosphere of renewed hope and inspiration in the 14,000 capacity building when Dr. Selaise Esar Agyinasare mounted the pulpit to deliver his Good Friday message.
Delivering a sermon titled ‘The blood that speaks better things’, the son of Bishop Charles Agyinasare preached about the significance of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
Focusing on the crown of thorns on Jesus’ head as well as his hands and feet being impaled by nails, Dr. Esar Agyinasare encouraged the congregation to be steadfast in their Christian faith.
According to him, the sweat and blood from Jesus’ head caused by the crown of thorns reversed the curse that God placed on the ground when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden. He also said the blood that oozed from Jesus’ hands has helped Christians regain dominion over all that they touch.
Alluding to the relevance of Jesus’ suffering, he prophesied into the lives and businesses of the church members.
“If the devil has been breaking any advancement in your life, if the devil has been breaking your speed in life, if you take two steps forward and take two steps backwards, I came to tell somebody that Jesus’ crown, His head was bruised so that you and I can have speed and advancement in life”, Rev. Agyinasare prophesized.
Religious services and ceremonies are a common feature (and perhaps the most predominant feature) in the celebration of Easter in Ghana. Main line churches in Ghana usually have church services on Easter Friday and on Easter Sunday with some variations.
